    That's an amazing piece of cherry burl, Pete. All sort of colors going on. Cool ornament, too.

    (I still have the piece of cherry burl you sent me partway roughed out and drying a bit more before I hose it down with wood hardener.)

    Pete, I love the contrasting grain, and the shape is killer. A bit different for an ornament, but killer just the same. Reminds me of a miniature bird feeder.

    Thanks for the comments!

    Billy,
    Actually, it is a bird feeder. It started out as a bird house but I didn't have the heart to drill a hole in it.
